I am a 20-something living in London with penchant for travel, food and all things fun!
Where did The Travelling Stomach come from?
The Travelling Stomach was born from my love of travelling, food and photography. Originally an Instagram page I have built this website to share more detailed reviews and offer my top travel tips. I want to showcase stunning destinations, exciting experiences and delicious meals around the world to a community of like-minded travellers.
Always planning my next trip abroad I’m constantly searching for inspiration both online and on Instagram. I love to share what I’ve discovered from my trips with others in the hope I can offer advice and inspire more people to travel to somewhere new. There’s a whole world to explore, each destination rich in its own culture and food, so why wait!
I’m also still exploring London (my new hometown as of 3 years ago!) visiting new restaurants and bars across the Capital. With several places opening weekly, London’s restaurant scene is constantly changing and I’m always keen to find a new favourite meal. I don’t claim to be a food connoisseur (although with the amount of meals out I consume I should be!) however I’m keen to share my honest thoughts on the various places I’ve been lucky enough to visit.
What inspired my love of travelling?
My first trip outside of the confines of Europe was aged 12 thanks to my mom’s thirst for a journey to somewhere without a swimming pool and all inclusive food. She took me on a cruise along the Nile to explore Egypt’s treasures and since then we have shared a love for discovering new places. We’ve travelled across four continents, sometimes together and sometimes apart (causing a little bit of rivalry!)
As I went on more adventures becoming a more experienced traveller with age I moved away from tour companies preferring to organise my own adventures. I fully endorse travelling this way if you are happy to do some research yourself prior to travelling. Travelling in this way means I can immerse myself in a destination fully meeting locals, eating at local restaurants and exploring less touristy areas.
There’s always somewhere new to explore! Even in cities I’ve visited numerous times there are still many undiscovered gems to stumble upon. I would love to eventually visit everywhere in the world but as that’s a little ambitious for now I’ve composed my dream bucketlist.
